Addressing safety and environmental concerns while creating sustainable food packaging was the theme of the IUFoST Scientific Roundtable Discussion (SRD). The focus was on new innovations, regulatory aspects, labelling and food safety issues. Key experts from France (Dr. Nathalie Gontard), USA (Dr. Young T. Kim), India (Dr Vimal Katiyar), and Australia (Dr. Deidre Mikklesen) provided the perspective and leadership, and all were encouraged to participate by asking questions from the panelists.
